I'm hoping someone might be able to help. I have an ASUS router which uses openVPN and spits out a config file to load into my OpenVPN client.
The issue is that when I connect with my OpenVPN client in MacOS or Windows, the client uses the ISP's DNS server rather than the DNS server running on the router (10.11.12.1). This means that I can't easily find local clients using their server name.
I've tried modifying the client config file and specifying the DNS server but the client ignores this (confirmed with nslookup). If I use the Tunnelblick client everything works fine.
This is my config file:
Code: Select all
remote router.domain.com.au 1194 float nobind proto udp pull-filter ignore "dhcp-option DNS" pull-filter ignore "dhcp-option DNS6" dhcp-option DNS 10.11.12.1 dhcp-option DOMAIN domain.local dev tun sndbuf 0 rcvbuf 0 keepalive 15 60 comp-lzo adaptive auth-user-pass client auth SHA1 remote-cert-tls server
